I've been out of the audio scene for about 12-13 years. I use to listen to rock at extreme volume and loved heavy bass. I remember back in the early 90’s having a Honda crx si with 2 lansar 15's before pyramid bought the company. I swear they loosened every bolt on the car and sounded like a rattle death trap on the outside. ahh the good times.

But the times have changed, although I still love rock with a heavy kick drum. So I'm looking for a little help in the sound quality area but nothing to crazy. I’m looking for clean crisp sound that can handle little volume at times and I’d still like to feel a little thump in the chest.

I have a 2011 Tundra Rock Warrior Double cab, looking to spend about $1500 more.

I have already purchased:

Clarion NX501 dvd/nav
Clarion CCA748 Ipod/video cable
Clarion brake bypass Cr2
Axxess ASWC
Metra Kit 99-8220CHG


Now the hard part and looking for your thoughts …

PPI PC3.65C 3 ohm 3 way for front $330
PPI PM.8 3 ohm Full range for rear $50
PPI Phantom P900.4 $230
PPI phantom P1000.1 $210
2 Memphis 15-SC12D4 Shallow $400


Also have a Fosgate power 500a2, 2ea polk DB12's. The polks won’t fit for this application. The amp could work, although I would like a matching 4 channel if I decide to go that route.

I hear a lot of great reviews about Stereo Integrity BM series, but it looks like it might be a while for those to release.

Any help, Ideas, or thoughts would be great. I’ve never used PPI before as I have always been a Fosgate fan but I remember the quality of the past and hope it’s still the same today.

Anyone have experience with Audioque?

was looking at AQ4X90 and AQ1200D and those looked like an option as-well.

Awesome, thanks for the pointers.

Which DSP/drivers would you recommend?

Research on the tundra looks like we can fit 8's in the door. depth of 3.75" using a 1.25" baffle/spacer.

Something like a Dayton Audio RS225-4 8

3" drivers in the stock dash location and tweets in the window sails.


I'm trying to keep the truck stock looking as much.


Thanks again!

The Dayton or the Peerless 830667. Reviews are helpful, like this one http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/member-reviews-product-comparisons/47930-8-comparo-dayton-rs225-vs-peerless-sls-830667-vs-pioneer-ts-sw841d-shallow-tall.html

Measure the opening in dash and the depth. But probably a 3".

I almost forgot, this would mean you need 2 more channels. So you need a hefty amount of watts for the midbass and around 50w for the midrange and 50 for the tweets (just guessing).

For 3" look at Dayton ref, Fountek FR88/89EX, Tang band Bamboo.

3" by 1.75" mounting depth. I can mod the width if needed and have about 1/4" cleanance at the top before I would hit the grill. (from the factory speaker) Depth cant be changed as its hitting the A/C ductwork.


So if I stick with the PPI amps, would It be an overkill on power for the 3-way?

P900.4 145w x4 @ 4ohm rms
Channel 1/2, 3 inch drivers RS75-4 15w rms
Channel 3/4, tweeters 15w rms

P600.2 190w x2 @ 4ohm rms
channel 1/2, Dayton Audio RS225 80w rms

P1000.1 1000w x1 @ 1 ohm rms
2ea 12" 4ohm DVC shallow mount subs of some brand.

4.5-5" depending on excursion. I would like them top mounted but not hitting the fabric of the seats.

I have a Stereo Integrity BM in my tundra and it's a great shallow sub but since they are hard to come by and the MKIV won't be out for a while, the Alpine SWR-T12 would be my next choice.

If you decide to go with a 3 way route, you can fit 3.5" speakers in the dash. The Fountek FR88EX fits pretty much as drop in or you can fit the Dayton RS100 with a little cutting of the dash.

Awesome, Nice to see another Tundra's opinion and thoughts.

Are you using the window sails for your tweets?

My sails are flat, so I either need to purchase the ones made for tweets with factory angle or fiberglass a custom set facing the correct way.


How do the mids sound bouncing off the windshield?
